  • . > (American / Metric measures) <
  • .1/2 lb. (250g) dry Linguini pasta
  • . sea salt for the boiling water
  • .
  • 1 cup (200g) 'White / Navy' beans
  • 1/2 cup (100g) Feta cheese (goat milk preferred)
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk (1-2%) or other non-dairy choice
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) mild 'Ajvar' spread (mostly a roasted red pepper purée)
  • .
  • 1/2 cup (90g) Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup (20g) flat, Italian parsley leaves

Directions

  1. . Prepare a large pot of boiling water. Add the sea salt.
  2. . Meanwhile, in a blender: combine the beans, feta cheese, milk and 'Ajvar' or roasted red pepper and blend until smooth.
  3. . Start cooking the pasta usually for about 5 minutes depending on brand chosen.
  4. . Meanwhile, pour the cheesy bean sauce into a large saucepan over MEDIUM heat and bring it to a slight boil. Turn off the heat while your pasta is cooking.
  5. . Add the Parmesan cheese and some of the parsley into the sauce and give it a quick stir.
  6. . When the pasta has reached the 'al dente' stage, drain it well and add it immediately into the creamy mixture. Cover the pot for about 2 minutes so that the pasta will soak up all that creaminess.
  7. Plate your linguini with a little more grated parmesan and garnish with the remaining parsley.
  8. . Flavourful wishes from Claudia's kitchen...FOODESSA.com

      This recipe will surely be one that can act as a base to many more varieties which I'm sure you'll be able to put your own creativity to.

        I love this recipe because it is light and vegetarian and I make beef or caribou kebabs which requires ajvar spread and I was looking for other recipes that also includes ajvar spread in the list of ingredients. Thanks for sharing.
